, the sentiment that was expressed in kelly's piece is very close to what speaker boehner said. they hate the bill. they don't like the bill but 89 votes is a real message. you have literally only a hand ful of democrats and a handful of republicans in the senate that voted against this thing in single digits. this means it will get through the house. it may be about 100, 110 republicans aat be s at best, b message was pretty clear and there's not much speaker boehner can do about it. they almost feel that the senate, in voting in those numbers, handcuffed the leadership, forcing them not to change the bill, throw it on there, not be happy about it, but live to fight another day. nancy pelosi and the democrats signed off on it. there may be more democratic votes that pass this house than republican votes at the end of the day, but it will pass. >> what kind of challenge does it face for the future when you see this kind of contentious situation going on for both sides? >> it means we'll have more of the same in the next, at least, three months. we have this whole setup coming up here in march. the

. the last day of this session was a perfect example of my way or the highway. john boehner had the temerity to suggest a little bit of a compromise, not much of one, and one he knew could not pass the senate. even that small step was rejected by his conference. the american people have a right to be very upset with his conference, that we are not carrying out the business that is before this country, that we are not meeting our responsibilities to each and every one of them and each and every family, each and every business, and addressing the challenges that they know are before us. i have never seen a public as energized or as knowledgeable about an issue as they are the fiscal cliff. i do not mean that they know every paragraph, sentence, and ramifications of the failure to stop going over the fiscal cliff, but they know it will not be positive. they know it will have a negative impact on the economy. and they know it will have a negative impact on them and their families, and they are expecting us to be here to work and we are not. i just observed on the floor that tens of millions of a

and their speaker, john boehner. >> reporter: but 90 minutes later new york representative said two votes for funding are forthcoming, one on friday for 9 billion in flood insurance and one in two weeks on another 51 billion. >> whatever reason the speaker decided not to bring it to a vote this week, obviously we disagreed were that and that's in the past. the bottom line is between friday morning and january 15th, those two votes, will bring in $60 billion that's absolutely necessary for new york, new jersey and connecticut. >> king obviously softening his tone from earlier. clearly some reversal, guys, based on republican reaction to something the republican house speaker could have handled. bill, back to you. >> all right, brian. thank you very much. well, those things, we know that's certain in life, death, taxes and another sequel of a batman movie. another one. our tax code remains far from clear. wait until you hear how much more you could be paying the tax man thanks to the phase out of some deductions embedded in the tax deal that congress just passed. that's coming up next. >> a

of speaker boehner's caucus would approve? that is what it is going to take, isn't it? >> it is. and it could be possible, adam. the next 24 hours will let us know. we have a reedout from our colleague ed henry, according to a senior white house official exactly how this meeting went down. this according to a white house official. basically the president said, you know, look if the speaker can not come up with some type of compromise, or republican and democratic leaders can not come up with some kind of compromise, would they put up the president's plan $250,000 below vote in the house, the white house officials said the speaker was noncommittal. the white house officials said that it does not appear that the debt ceiling is part of this. that is a major obstacle for republicans in the house. they said that they wanted for the president a four year plan the debt ceiling. it could help carve the vote. adam: when the president says nobody gets 100% of what they want, is he tipping his hat that perhaps, okay, it won't be a tax increase on 250,000, but maybe the higher 400 or 500,000 for the tax
